I don't understand all the comments about how he should be ashamed of doing something so silly at whatever age he is, especially coming from a bunch of people who still enjoy a show aimed at little boys themselves. A lot of people would call that shameful, and I think anyone who'd argue that what this kid did and what we enjoy are on entirely different levels would be missing the point.

Long story short, I think some people should lighten up. It's okay to do something silly once in a while. Life's too short to be serious and boring all the time--and this guy's life has only just begun!
I guess your right, just a bit of silly humor, that just happened to not connect with me. Like I said, I got nothing against him, just that I found his video to have gotten a tad bit more attention it deserved. But hey, at least it isn't as obnoxious as "Over 9000!!!". Now that's a headache that just won't go away! :lol:

I have nothing in particular against him, I just find it ludicrous. :lol:

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.

I'm just about done with the concept of reboots and making shows that were products of their time and impactful "new and sexy" and in line with modern tastes and sensibilities. Let stuff stay in their era and give today's kids their own shit to watch.

I always side eye the people who say "Now my kids/today's kids can experience what I did as a child!" Nigga, who gives a fuck about your childhood? You're an adult now and it was at least 15 years ago. Let the kids have their own experience instead of picking at a corpse.

My only problem is that he's making money off it.

Jord doesn't have a avatar because the combination of Jord and a equally cool avatar would cause the universe to implode.

I don't think his intention was to make money though. He probably just wanted to do it and then someone was like hey do you want money? What's he going to say no? That's like if you have an acquaintance and his girlfriend who is smoking hot wants to have sex with you , sure it's not nice but really was there ever really an option?

This has nothing to do with the topic at hand but, um ... yes?

Haha , in reference to PD saying he is pissed at Jalen for making cash for video. I'm sure he didn't say hey I'm going to make a jerk out of myself on YouTube and make gwap. He just did it and people were like hey dude do you want this free money? Sure why the heck not .

I meant, "Yes, you have an option not to sleep with your acquaintance's hot girlfriend."

If I made an embarrassing video someone offered me money to capitalize on, however, I'd probably take it. About as much good as can come of it at that point.

I don't understand why that's a problem--unless we're bringing questions about copyright infringement into the discussion, that is. If you're just blaming him for making money out of doing something dumb, then I think you should be blaming all the people who viewed the video and contributed to its apparent popularity; and you'd have to blame yourself and all of us for contributing to that hit-counter as well.

In all honesty...I'm just being a grumpy bastard on the internet. I just wanted to rant for a bit. I understand, but I still don't like it.

Well, have fun potentially getting your ass kicked by the aforementioned acquaintance! :P

Yea , you probably deserve it but it's totally worth it. Look I'm not saying to hit on her or pursue her but if she's trying to rape you how can anyone resist? Her bf would understand after he beats your ass . Lol.

You do realize that rape means to force sex upon someone without their consent, right? If a woman was going to rape you, she wouldn't do it for your enjoyment. That's pretty much the point of rape.

And "smoking hot girls" are overrated anyway. I'd rather have my health and/or my life than get beaten up just because I couldn't keep it in my pants. Not screwing over other people for your own selfish desires is a good lesson for life.

No, just saying my opinion. It's kind of an unsaid rule to not fuck other people's girlfriends.

Agreed which is why it's such a conflict here. Maybe you've never been approached by a hot girl but it's not easy turning down something that happens probably only a couple of times in your life .

No, I haven't been approached by a hot girl (that was a cheap shot :P ), but I'd rather not get beaten up or otherwise piss off a guy that I may like because I had some (meaningless) one-night stand with his girlfriend. Guilt's a powerful thing too. And the fantasy is always better than the reality.

No way dude a fantasy coming true is way better. Trust me mucho sex in my time. Get on out there and get you some tail boy it's good stuff! Damn virgins need to put the laptop down once in a while! Lol. But yea getting beat up is not too big of a deal to me , I'm in to boxing and stuff so getting punched is no biggie. Obviously getting punched hard sucks , but I like my chances anyway I'm no pushover. Ok take out the getting beat up part your acquaintance is not a threat at all , still wouldn't do it? And note I said acquaintance not friend.
